In case you’ve missed my pondering over the whole hippie trend in makeup and fashion, please, see my two previous posts. Or just see here […]

Seemingly, fashion trends and makeup trends are two different things. Fashion trends are all about styles, fashions, cuts… what does it all have to do with makeup? Here’s what 🙂 I can name one thing, at least, off the top of my head that fashion and makeup have in common – colour. Wouldn’t you agree? Colour means a whole world to both fashion and makeup. So, looking at colours that are all hot on the […]

They have so many shades in those ranges. The kind […]
